The foreign investor may transfer funds to regional center's project account. Please consult an experienced EB-5 attorney to assure proper transfer and documentation.
The investor can transfer funds from a bank abroad directly to a Regional Center account in the US.
Wire transfers are commonplace. Hire an agent to help you do it or to open an account. Also, many foreign banks have U.S. branches. Many RCs use an escrow agent EVEN THOUGH it is NOT mandatory to do so. Where there is a will, there is a way. Be creative but KEEP it LEGAL! Ensure that no SANCTIONED banks or entities are involved (check with OFAC for this information.) OFAC = Office of Foreign Assets Control (A U.S.Government Agency that MIGHT issue a License for certain transactions, persons or institutions.) INVESTIGATE this issue BEFORE doing anything!
